Horrible To-Do list

What if I told that you that you are using your task lists ineffectively?

Would that surprise you? Lots of people use task lists every day, but I’d wager plenty of them are going about it the wrong way. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that they don’t even complete their task lists most of the time.

Are you one of them?

Well you don’t have to be. With a few simple tweaks to how you approach your task lists, we can make it so you finish your task lists each and every time.

 

Maximizing your task list productivity

Here’s what it probably looks like when you set out to complete a task list:

  • You take out a piece of paper
  • You write down 5+ things you want done
  • You write those tasks in vague terms (e.g. find a babysitter, look for a new suit)
  • You do them in random order, with no prioritization
  • You add new tasks as they arrive
  • You don’t finish the list, and still have important things to do on it

Sound familiar?

Lots of people tackle their tasks lists just like this, even though it’s ineffective. But we can move this past this ineffectiveness by using 5 tips that’ll improve your task list usage and maximize your productivity.
